SPAM- http://www.cusd.claremont.edu/~mrosenbl/spamfaq.html

Ingredients:  Chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added, Salt (for binding, flavour, and firmness), Water (to help in mixing),
Sugar (for flavour), Sodium Nitrite (for colour and as a preservative)

How it's made:  According to Hormel: ''The ingredients are ground to a medium-coarse texture. Spices are then added to enhance the
product's natural flavour. After the blending process is completed, the meat is mechanically filled into cans, sealed, and cooked in
a ret ort oven. Upon leaving the retort, the cans are dried and transferred to the packaging area. A caser then automatically
unscrambles and distributes the cans into the feed section, forms the corrugated tray, and loads the cans into each tray. the packed
cases are conveyed through an automatic code dater and a shrink film tunnel. The sealed cases are then transferred to the storage
and warehouse area to await shipment.'' Wow!

Souse- http://www.foodreference.com/html/fsouse.html

Ingredients- Head cheese, also called souse and brawn, is a jellied loaf or sausage. Originally it was made entirely from the meaty
parts of the head of a pig or calf, but now can include edible parts of the feet, tongue, and heart. The head is cleaned and
simmered until the meat falls from the bones, and the liquid is a concentrated gelatinous broth. Strained, the meat is removed from
the head, chopped, seasoned and returned to the broth and the whole placed in a mold and chilled until set, so it can be sliced.
